Community bulletin board for member news, schmooze and announcements.   

Members: 101
Latest Activity: Jul 6, 2017


Welcome to the only group on this site where you can talk about everything and the kitsch n sink. You are now in the NEWS and SCHMOOZE Zone. 

Members get to decide what they want to talk about.  This is the right place for announcements, news, bragging,  friend stuff, sharing and caring and whatever else you want to talk about.

If you need help on how to understand this site...please go to the HELP Group (see top of your page).  If you need help with the identification and evaluation of an item you found, inherited, bought please use the Whadja Find Group.

As the NEAT FREAK, I will try hard to keep this group as NEWS and SCHMOOZE. I ask members to help me keep the group tidy. If you see a post that belongs in Whadja Find or somewhere else, please politely tell the poster they are in the wrong  place and guide them to the best place to post. Anyone want to help me keep this group neat and organized? I sure could use some helpers(s) Please email me at

Who collects and/or buys Bakelite? I just did a blog on it, how finding good quality at fair price is getting harder. We have bought and sold Bakelite jewelry and other items for the past 8 years and the market appears in our area to be drying up.

Comment by C. Dianne Zweig Editor's Desk on October 18, 2016 at 8:05pm

What has happened to all the chatter in this group... where is everyone.

Comment by Liz Bryman on May 10, 2016 at 7:50am

Sorry to hear about wicked weather, Tom and Denise. We have our share in north Florida too. So far mostly rain and hail in some parts, no late frosts.

My African Crackerjack Marigold seeds were planted on March 30th in seedling pots. On May 6th they went in the ground along the driveway. About 6-8" high now they will flower in another two weeks, usually very large and showy. This photo from May 7, partial only as the row continues on the left:

And closeup of one from last year's crop in another area of the garden. Have also seeded Bachelor's Buttons and Gypsyphila, should be visible in another week or so.

It's raining and storming hard here in Southeast Missouri. Lots of lightning! I hope the garden doesn't get destroyed! Will have to replant for sure!

I live in Eastern Oregon about 50 miles due west of Boise ID. Usually storms are of short duration but this one lasted from around 4PM to  4AM.  Dropped lots of rain. Streets had standing water in them in the morning.

We are looking for new Group Moderators for many of our groups. Please let me know if you would be interested in a particular topic.

Comment by C. Dianne Zweig Editor's Desk on May 9, 2016 at 11:04am

Who watched the Anderson Cooper : Nothing Left Unsaid-Gloria Vanderbilt"? Very well done.....share your thoughts if you watched.

Comment by Liz Bryman on May 8, 2016 at 10:26am

Tom, pray tell WHERE in the Wild World of Antiques do you live? Inquiring minds want to know what could beat Houston of course.

Glad you're safe and got your Internet--that is something to celebrate on a Sunday morning methinks.
